About OPT Out Program:
The goal of the OPT Out Program is to increase collaboration between Carolinas CARE Partnership and local agencies to address opioid misuse for those we serve. Our target population is LGBTQ people ages 14-25 and people living with HIV. We are inspired to increase awareness and decrease stigma related to substance use disorders and HIV/AIDS. We focus on community engagement and opioid misuse prevention with a trauma-informed, harm reduction approach. Ultimately, OPT Out will reduce prescription drug misuse, among those we serve, through our coalition and partnerships with community stakeholders. We are working to help youth opt out of substance misuse!
